You’ve most likely heard of or experienced good voting experiences – and maybe some bad ones. While many factors go into your time at the polls, one of the most important and most quintessential parts of the experience is poll workers!
Poll workers are a vital part of our democracy, but the country is currently experiencing a critical shortage of poll workers. This will mean longer lines, delayed results, or even closure of polling sites altogether.
With less than five weeks until Election Day, we need your help: election administrators need more poll workers to help at polling places this election season.
What does a poll worker do?
As a poll worker, you get paid to help make sure the election is fair, efficient, safe, and accessible for all voters. Poll workers support early voting locations, ensure technology functions, and help minimize long lines and delays at polling places.
